Weekend Distraction: Cryptogram for iPhone and iPad

Screen shot 2012-12-28 at 8.55.55 PMI enjoy word games, and I am finding this one delightfully different. Not too much thinking needed, but just enough to keep me interested for a screen or two.

You are presented with a quote, all blanks, with a jumble of letters beneath the blanks. Each letter stands for another letter, and it is up to you to de-code it.

By starting with a short word, you can begin to puzzle your way through the code. When you get a letter correct, it will appear all throughout the quote. You can see here on this screen shot that I filled in “AND” and as I did, the “a” the “n” and the “d” all appeared properly throughout the quote, giving clues for solutions to other words.

  1. We used to have something similar to this in a crossword format in the newspaper, except then you had to pencil in each letter and if you made a mistake, rub it all out. I like this way of doing it much, much better.

  2. I’m really enjoying it – what fun! I’ll have to move off the easy level soon though – now that I’ve gotten the hang of it, I can do one in a couple of minutes. I’ve really enjoyed the game recommendations you’ve been doing.


I'd love to hear what you think!
